Yes, most of the current "ADV" bikes are heavier, but that's no praise. By comparison, my '06 Uly is 515 lb in the same condition.

Dunno that Erik's latest creation will be all that light, but boy, anything lighter would sure be appreciated.

I guess that's why the name of this sub-forum is BEASTS...
